"The Bed Series" is Robert Mack's solo exhibition debuting new work from his wrapped project consisting of photographic studies and experimental video. These explorations capture moody and performance / portraits of friends (artists, actors, and art scene denizens) at his home in the Hollywood Hills. The images are posed and taken in his bed; a sensual and personal environment that remains innocent and playful in the artists vision. Where Cristo wraps buildings, Robert wraps people. During these sessions, he wraps his subjects with sheer material, creating beautiful, intimate, even challenging images. He describes his videos as visual poems, or "haiku videos." The photographs and haiku videos capture a moment of experience; an instant when the ordinary, suddenly reveals its inner nature and asks us to take a second look.
About the artist:
His fine art work has been shown at various galleries in the United States and in Europe. In 2008: both his photography and haiku video installation were shown at Berlin's Spesshardt-Klein Gallery and at the Berlin Film Festival as an artist collaborator on the www.twentyninepalms.ca project. His "Haiku Someone Said" was a juried winner of LACDA's recent international digital competition, selected by Howard Fox, senior curator of contemporary art at LACMA. Both The Getty and MoMA senior curators of photography recently requested Robert's photography portfolio for review.
